Week 21 Posting

This week’s topics, Online Education Theory, really reminded me that I often employ pedagogies that I simply did not know or remember the name of. This is both good and bad in the sense that I should know the names of the pedagogies I employ, but good in the sense that I do employ them 🙂

I’ve chosen to do a Powerpoint this week on how these pedagogies appear in my own English courses already and how I might adapt them to my English courses online…along with other musings about the week’s reading, which I found incredibly interesting. I did attempt to upload this to Slideshare, but I got several error messages. I’ll keep trying, but don’t have a link to post, so I’m jsut attaching the PPT here 😦 Week 21 Ponderings.

In terms of my final presentation, I’ve done several Prezis and am considering doing a final one for my project simply because I now feel really comfortable in that format and would like to see what I can do now that I’m not “learning” still. My topic of interest, I believe, will be something to do with the expectations of online students and how they differ or match up with the expectations that isntructors have. Ideally, I’d like to go back to some of our readings about how to develop a strong course (practically speaking in terms of accessing files, etc) and what students think about this set-up, etc..and how it affects their overall impression of online courses and the isntructors teaching them. Any feedback is greatly appreciated.
